Shiro Cosmetics’ Steelix / Victory Road

Shiro Cosmetics’ Steelix / Victory Road

Monday at 10:15 AM: Part of the original Super Effective collection, discontinued some time in…I have no idea. Its name was changed to Victory Road in 2012, and then…the collection lineup changed again. I have no idea what happened to this color. I’m going to guess that in 2014, when the collection size was reduced to 15 colors, that’s when this one got trimmed.

Meow Cosmetics’ Head Shot

Meow Cosmetics’ Head Shot

Monday at 7:15 AM: I bought this color a few years ago, when the collection first came out. (And then I put it in my “to be swatched” backlog-box and there it stayed.

BareMinerals’ Perfect Rose blush

BareMinerals’ Perfect Rose blush

Friday at 10:15 AM: There are some extremely faint rouge tones in this, but they’re very faint. This would make a really good summery blush for fairer/lighter skintones, with the very faint appearance of “tanned-blush”. Annoyingly, this was only…

Milani’s Color Statement Lipstick in Matte Blissful

Friday at 7:15 AM: Specifically part of the Moisture Matte sub-collection…I don’t know. I like the ease of application, and the non-dry-feeling part; but I’m not super-fond of the fact that, as a matte, it really emphasizes any problems…
